{Deployment Care Package Program} Bake Love Give


Since September, bloggers from around the world have been putting together care packages to send to Afghanistan in support of one platoon of soldiers.  But, not just any platoon of soldiers… my husband and his platoon.

This month, my bloggy friend Kimmie Schiffel of Bake Love Give has put together the cutest care package for my husband and his platoon!

But, before we get to the care package… let me tell you a little about Kimmie! Kimmie and I met (virtually) back in 2010 when I hosted the Cupcakes Take the Cake 6th Birthday Bash in Seattle, WA.   Kimmie donated some of the most beautifully made and decorated Cupcakes Take the Cake cookies for the party that looked exactly like the CTTC logo!  And what’s even better is that she had them sent all the way from California to join the party.  Kimmie couldn’t be there, but her amazing cookies were!


I’ve watched Kimmie’s blog grow and evolve from Full Circle Adventures  into the wonderful Bake Love Give and it has become a “go-to” for recipes and inspiration for my own baking!  Since 2010, Kimmie and I have remained friends and I am so thrilled to be work with her on this care package project!

Kimmie has put together the most creative Christmas care package for my husband and his platoon!  You know the movie “Elf”?  Well her package is inspired from some of the fun things in that movie!

I won’t give away all the details… I’ll let you go over to Kimmie’s blog and see for yourself!  But, I’ve got a feeling that the soldiers are going to absolutely LOVE this care package!

A big THANK YOU goes to Kimmie for putting together this amazing care package.  It’s support from self-less people like Kimmie that make getting through the holiday’s during deployment just a little more bearable.    It really does take a special person to do something great for others… so thank you Kimmie for doing that for me, my husband and his soldiers.

It is truly appreciated.
